 Resistant Starch Foods Could Help You Burn More Calories
Resistant starch foods can help you burn more calories and nullify the need for dieting, says a new study from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center for Human Nutrition.

The study, which involved 4,451 participants, found that those who ate the most carbohydrates were the slimmest, while those who ate the least carbohydrates were the heaviest.

Resistant starch foods include bananas, potatoes, pasta, whole grain bread, oatmeal, barley, and brown rice. These foods are less digestible to the human body, which means that it is very hard to break them down. This leaves a person feeling full quickly.

These foods can help blood-sugar control and lower cancer risk as well.
